    He is sweet but he did these things there and she wanted me to know how he was....

    I think he just needs time and routine....

    Look at that cute face.

    He is a good looking boy, but I can tell by his face, and tail, he has an attitude. First let him settle in and start working on him with his manners and letting him know he has rules and that you are the alpha. If he has peeing problems I would crate train him and this should help with the peeing problem. Every time he comes out of his crate he goes straight outside to pee. This will take time but well worth the effort in the long run.

    Great advice from David. Whenever we have rescued an animal..there have ALWAYS been those fleeting moments of "good grief, what have We done"...and each one took time to settle in and find their "self". You actually have a great advantage over what we had. Ours were straight off the streets and we had zero history. No names,no idea of age and no real feel for the life they had led. Yet, each of these critters turned out to be the most wonderful addition to our family. You want to try a tough nut..try a appx 2 year old rottweiler who turned out to be pregnant, hated cats, and had been living on the streets for a long time. We had to keep her on a leash in the house for weeks in order to save our cats, not to mention the other 2 dogs we had. Yet,she became the love of my life and I treasure the time we had. My vet gave me great advice. She said..you will know the true character of these rescues when they start to let down their guard. They will revert to puppyhood and behave like bad puppies. But when this happens, you know they have opened their heart and brought you in. Then they learn all over again what YOU expect of them. Give him time..I hope he is as wonderful as ours all were.

    Your so right... I saw it with BeBe. I know where he came from they had him since he was 4 month but there bassette was ruff on him. I think he bullied his way out of things too and so far i just will not deal with the growling and crazy acting dog. Oh and i got a crate today too so yes he is sleeping in it...

    I think im gonna go love on a bullie(s)

    As far as collars go, I had a foster that I couldnt put one on. So I got her a harness and let her drag the leash around in the house. It took awhile but eventually it worked.
